Cal fer servir get o become davant d'adjectiu?

Hi ha un grup de verbs pronominals catalans que descriuen un canvi d'estat o de condició i que solen traduir-se pels girs «get got gotten + adjectiu» o «become became become + adjectiu». El problema que es presenta és que l'ús de l'un o l'altre verb depèn generalment del complement adjectival. Per exemple, hom sol dir get sick, però become ill (emmalaltir-se); get lost (perdre's), però become aware (adonar-se), get tired (cansar-se), però become apparent (fer-se evident), etc. A grans trets podem dir que become es fa servir més amb adjectius d'arrel llatina i get amb adjectius anglosaxons, però hi ha moltes excepcions.

Vegem ara una llista, ordenada per freqüència d'ús (les xifres entre parentesis quantifiquen tal freqüència), d'expressions en què els girs «get + adjectiu» i «become + adjectiu» es tradueixen, en la majoria dels casos, per verbs pronominals catalans.
